Research creates the future. Whether new energy supply concepts, internet safety, intelligent mechatronic systems or new diagnosis and therapy systems in health care, we are working on solutions for tomorrow.

Quotation marks

ruhrvalley’s thematic focus on innovative mobility and energy systems lets us expand two of our research core areas and lend great stimulus to the region.

Prof. Dr. Bernd Kriegesmann, President

Our core competencies

We consider strong research as the essential basis of modern teaching, which addresses current and future challenges. One of research’s supporting pillars is the diversity of topics it addresses. Our objective is to continue cultivating this diversity and simultaneously develop the core areas that set us apart.
